A survey conducted by the Institute of Infectious Diseases Emilio Ribas, Sao Paulo, reveals that congenital syphilis is responsible for 40% of new cases of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) diagnosed in the unit. On average, 3.6 new cases are diagnosed every day STD in the hospital.

Men are the main victims, accounting for 82% of infections detected. In total, 1,330 cases of STDs were reported in 2012. After syphilis, hepatitis B list follows with 19%, and candidiasis, with 11%. The other diseases were recorded HPV (which causes cervical cancer), chlamydia, gonorrhea and chancroid.

The study shows that the majority of patients were aged 30 and 40 years. The high number of new cases per day worries doctors, because according to the data of these patients are infected with the HIV virus and is now monitoring the Institute. This points to the lack of care in this population. Besides the most common STDs, they may be transmitting HIV to partners, says infectious Ralcyon Teixeira.

According to him, did not use a condom during sex is the main reason for the high number of cases. Prevention is the most effective way of not contracting an STD. You need to use a condom even during oral sex, as this is one of the main forms of infection if done in an unprotected form.

Jean Gorinchteyn also the Emilio Ribas, says that in recent years the population has lost the fear of being contaminated by sexually transmitted diseases. People think that because these diseases medicines have no problem. They ignore or do not know that treatment is not simple and that diseases can progress to complications and even lead to death, he says.
